The patch-set adds the following 2 dynamic load balancers:
o dm-queue-length: queue-length oriented dynamic load balancer
o dm-service-time: service-time oriented dynamic load balancer
This patch-set can be applied on top of 2.6.29-rc8.
No dependencies on Alasdair's linux-next patches.
While the patches compile and work with the current bio-based dm,
for them to *properly* work, the request-based dm patches should
be applied, too.
See <http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/9/12/100> for why request-based dm
improves multipath load balancing.
Summary of the patch-set:
1/3: dm-mpath: interface change for dynamic load balancers
2/3: dm-mpath: add queue-length oriented dynamic load balancer
3/3: dm-mpath: add service-time oriented dynamic load balancer
